The Pakistani Taliban on Saturday claimed responsibility for a gun ambush that killed three police officers in northern Pakistan, the second attack claimed by the group just days after it announced an end to a cease-fire with the government.
Police carrying out a patrol in Nowshera, a district of northern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province that borders Afghanistan, came under fire on Saturday evening, a regional police deputy inspector, Mohammad Ali Gandapur, told Reuters.
He said three police officers were killed and the identity of the attackers was unknown.
The militant group Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement.
On Monday, the TTP announced an end to a months-long cease-fire, claiming a suicide attack in the southern Pakistani city of Quetta two days later that killed four people and wounded more than 30.
